SOCHI, February 17. /ITAR-TASS/. The Sochi infrastructure has proved sufficient to provide services for some 100,000 tourists from Russia and abroad daily, Mayor of the Sochi resort city Anatoly Pakhomov told journalists at a briefing on Monday.
Sochi's experience as a health resort catering for a big number of vacationers in summer enabled it to cope with any load of hotel accommodation and very many visitors to Sochi restaurants and cafes, he said.
Around a million spectators have already been to sport competitions at the Sochi Olympics. We had expected the accommodation load at hotels at more than 100,000 guests per day, what exactly we are watching now. All the restaurants, cafes and hotels have been servicing the guests of the city, which also rents housing to visitors. Since no complaints were lodged we believe the city has coped with its tasks, the Sochi mayor said.
One comes across fans from all over the world not only at Olympic stadiums, but also in fan zones — the so-called Live Sites organized for broadcasts and cultural events attended by around 200,000 already. There are five such Live Sites in the city; admission is free. Around 7,500 visitors per day come to the live site near the Sochi southern sea port mole, the Sochi mayor said.
